Joey Barton became the 4th League One manager sacked so far this season

Joey Barton's dismissal made him the fifth manager dismissed in League One already this season following changes at Charlton, Fleetwood, Cheltenham and Lincoln so far this season.

Barton was in charge for almost three years before being sacked on Thursday with Rovers currently sat in 16th in the table after just four league wins this season.

The former Newcastle and Manchester City midfielder is well known for being controversial and he will have often divided opinion with fans of the club.

Bristol Rovers now out to 16/1 for promotion this season

Bristol Rovers are now big outsiders to be promoted from League One this season after their dismal start to the season sees them well in the bottom half of the table.

The latest betting odds have them at 16/1 to be promoted which puts them as the 11th favourites to go up to the Championship at the end of the season.

Portsmouth are the odds-on favourites to go up this season after their unbeaten start to the season has seen them win 9 and draw 5 of their opening 14 games.
